Outpatient Clinics

Urban Health Practice 

East Baltimore Medical Center, a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model, is the centerpiece of each resident’s community outpatient experience. EBMC, located off-campus in one of the most under-served and disadvantaged communities in the city, houses a thriving med-peds, pediatric, obstetrics and gynecology, and internal medicine clinic. EBMC is also the epicenter for Johns Hopkins’ new health zone community outreach program, The Access Program (TAP). TAP allows our primary care patients to access specialty care at Hopkins.

The EBMC Urban Health clinic is designed to facilitate the PCMH care-delivery system. The PCMH is a team-based model of care led by a personal physician who provides continuous and coordinated care throughout a patient's lifetime to maximize health outcomes. Physicians engage in a collaborative effort, providing high levels of access, communication, care coordination and integration, care quality, and safety. Residents experience inter-professional care of patients as they partner with nurse practitioners, nurse practitioner students, and community health workers (CHWs) in providing patient-centered care. In conjunction with the CHWs, residents make house calls. 

 East Baltimore Medical Center served over 20,000 people in 2011.
